$1,000 For A Bottle of Beer?

Vancouver’s Storm Brewing is selling 10 one-liter bottles of its Glacial Mammoth Extinction beer for $1,000 CAD a pop).

The beer is quite strong (25 percent alcohol by volume) and probably very good but it's the bottle that has driven the price into the stratosphere. Designed by artist Richard Marcus, each of the glass bottles are affixed with a real mammoth tusk pendant. The tusks came from a mining operation in the Yukon years ago and the ivory is technically legal.
